Picturesque Ein Karem is one of Jerusalem's most charming neighborhoods. With its ancient stone buildings and rich history, it's a popular destination for pilgrims who come to see where, according to the Christian tradition, John the Baptist was born after his mother's miraculous pregnancy. The quaint and colorful Russian Orthodox Gorny Convent now surrounds the pulpit that was used by Ein Karem's most beloved native son.
